We will only remove your tooth when no other option is suitable. Generally, a tooth extraction is performed mainly if there is extreme tooth decay or trauma. Tooth extractions can also be a part of a larger dental procedure including the extraction of some permanent teeth to make space for orthodontic or Invisalign treatment, however we emphasize we only take this option if absolutely necessary.
However, sometimes despite our best efforts, a tooth needs to be removed because it is badly broken, infected, or causing pain.
We are all dental patients too, so we know that is normal to have some level of anxiety about having a tooth removed. That’s why our team works so hard to make sure your visits are as quick, painless, and easy as possible
Your doctors will take great care to make sure you are fully aware of all our options, and then will help you through your treatment by making you feel comfortable and in control.
These days, teeth can usually be removed very quickly and comfortably. Gone are the days many decades ago when removing a tooth involved major surgery and trauma. With today’s techniques, materials, and medications, most of our patients leave pleasantly surprised at how easy it was.
In fact, our favorite reaction is when we sit the chair up and the patient asks, “What? Are we done already?”.
If you think you need a tooth removed, or just want a second opinion, give us a call at 281-304-4746 and we’d love to show you what truly exceptional dental care is all about!
Our aim during this procedure is to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible.
We can offer you nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or if necessary, conscious sedation.
